Indian High Commissioner to Kenya Rahul Chhabra (pictured) has called on Kenyans to take advantage of scholarships that are being offered through the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR).

He spoke during the ICCR Foundation Day that was celebrated at India House in Nairobi last week.

“India’s vision is to support like-minded countries in their efforts to educate their citizens. We have always been ready to support Kenya in this sector and have devised courses in almost all fields in the best institutions of India. We shall continue to do so. I want to inform the people of Kenya to take full advantage of the scholarships,” he said.

The ICCR alumni from Kenya, who were beneficiaries from ICCR scholarship schemes, attended the event that was also graced by ambassadors from different countries along with representatives from Government.

The ICCR was founded in April 1950 to foster and strengthen cultural relations and mutual understanding between India and other countries.

“The Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation was started to help fellow developing countries achieve the objectives of skilled manpower in all fields for technological and economic development,” the envoy added.
